Goals I'm Going to Smash in 2020

2020 – bring it on. 2019 was rough but it made me a (hopefully) tougher person, and I’m ready to smash my goals and be more aligned with my dream self. I know it’s a cliche to say “new year, new me” but it’s a cliche for a damn good reason – because there’s nothing fresher than a fresh new year. And yes, I might be a *little* late in posting these seeing as we’re always halfway through January, but it’s still January so that counts, right? Anyway, here are my goals for 2020!

jumper: boohoo or missguided.. Sorry can’t remember! / skirt: boohoo / boots: new look / bag: killstar / necklace: glavil by TuTuHa / earrings: forgot, soz!

Experiment with (easy) hairstyles

It’s a well-known fact that I, Lizzie, am terrible at hairstyles so I want to make my life nice and easy by experimenting with nice and easy hairstyles! I’ve already got 4 staple styles that I can now do, but I’d love to try out more no-heat ones. 

Try tanning

“You’ve been gal for how long and you haven’t even tanned?!” I know, I know… But I want to try out self-tanning more in 2020, especially in the summer months! There’s a big chance that it might not suit me so I’m going to opt for a more gradual tan. 

Find comfort in my gyaru style

I’ve never doubted myself as much as I did in 2019 when it came to gyaru, so 2020 I want to be more confident and comfortable with my style. I want to break out of the mindset that I have to fit in a particular substyle in order for it to be regarded as gyaru, which will mean spending less money on gyaru brand and buying things locally.

And here my other non-gyaru goals for 2020!

Do more side projects

2019 was the year of the Blog, but I want 2020 to be the year of Design. I feel such an immense weight of guilt on my shoulders every time I think about the lack of side projects I did and the fact that I rarely do anything outside of work to push my skills further, so this might mean less time for blogging. But hopefully this will work out for both of my passions, as less time blogging will mean more time focusing on creating meaningful content (whatever that may be). It’s going to be so hard though as I’ve grown to love going out and taking photos.

Travel more

I wanted to add this goal again because I had so much fun travelling last year! I want to do more day trips this time instead of spending a lot of money abroad, especially because there are so many pretty villages and towns in the U.K. I’ve still got York on my mind, but I’d love to go to Bath and more places in the Cotswolds.

Experiment more with photography

I want to experiment more with my poses and the way we shoot outfits, like Isobel and I did when we went to take these photos used in this post! It had rained earlier on in the day and I noticed that there was a nice reflection in the large puddle, and I want to do more shots like that. I’m not very good when it comes to posing so hopefully playing around will push me further out of my comfort zone!

Waste less + eat more veggie meals

We are so bad when it comes to throwing out food we have forgotten, so I want to be more conscious of that and make sure we use everything we have in the fridge before going out to the shops again. I’ve been eating vegetarian lunches 4 days a week in 2019, and I want to extend that to 5 days and have some vegetarian dinners as well. The only problem is finding something that will fill us up – especially my hubby!

To not stifle my passions

I know it sounds crazy but… I’ve always felt embarrassed when I say that I absolutely love dressing up and going out to take photos. It’s one of my favourite things to do but it’s something I feel that I can’t really admit to my friends. But this year I want to embrace that this is what I love doing, and to stop trying to throw myself into other hobbies just because I feel like this particular one isn’t hobby-worthy. This is kinda’ contradicting my previous goal of making this year the Year of Design, but I’m going to be more organised with my days and maybe do two shoots a month for the blog, which will (hopefully) leave the other weekends for Design. We shall see!

My goals for 2020

That’s all for 2020! What are your goals for this year?

Love,
Lizzie xx

    I forgot to upload my post concerning 2020 goals till the middle of January too, so completely agree with your argument that it still totally counts! I love that you’ve set a goal of being less wasteful and eating more veggie – I actually not thought of that but now want to apply that to 2020 for myself too and try to be more conscious of my actions and if I am being ‘wasteful’ especially with food. Good luck in 2020!

      Gosh I am so glad that I am not the only one! But yes, I think it’s an important goal to achieve especially now that we are more conscious of our wasteful habits. Thank you so much, and good luck to you too!

      Awh thanks so much! And I think it was either boohoo or missguided, I can never remember between the two. And thank you so so much, I’ll be sure to share them on here!

    I’ve already blogged my goals for the year, but “do more side projects” is sort of in there – my work has become less about writing software and more sitting in meetings about software, so I have some side projects planned to keep my skills fresh!

    York and the Cotswolds are some of my regular haunts – both are great places to visit. Bath is nice too!

      That’s so frustrating, but doing side projects should really help! Good luck on your goals for this 2020.
      I’ve been meaning to go to Bath for aaaaages so fingers crossed I can go this year.
